A glass door showcases the third floor's open floor plan and keeps rowdy game room gatherings from disturbing other third-floor spaces.

Chosen by online voters, an air hockey table will keep kids — young and young at heart — busy on rainy beach days.

One of the home’s original windows turns DIY scoreboard with the addition of plywood backing and chalkboard paint.

An 8-foot bar, constructed from the home’s original 2x4s, is topped with saltwater-aged copper. An ice maker and popcorn popper find a home on the countertop, while refreshments are stored in the under-counter beverage cabinet.

Custom-crafted window benches provide seating for a large crowd. A sloped ceiling follows the lines of roof rafters, with an HVAC chase lending architectural interest.

Window benches that line the wall open to reveal additional storage for pillows, sports equipment and games.

Radial wave sconces, inspired by circa-1920s street light designs, lend a nautical touch to the room’s rustic-chic decor.

Matt Blashaw and Anitra Mecadon sorted through mismatched tin ceiling tiles, purchased through an architectural salvage warehouse, to create the patchwork quilt-style design that clads the room’s tray ceiling. Tiles were trimmed to size, cleaned and sealed with polyurethane prior to installation.

Scrap tin from the ceiling project and boards of lumber salvaged from the home form the bones of decorative wall frames. A punched-tin flower votive nestles inside each art piece.
